Diana Barquero Pérez

(Costa Rica, 1986) Artist and researcher. Her work emphasizes processes of friction, transformation, and collapse. She focuses on places that coexist in tension with so-called “productive spaces.” How are sociopolitical interests and tensions inscribed in the landscape? What are the subjects/materials and processes that mediate this production? Through her work, Diana seeks to answer these questions. She holds an MA in Spatial Strategies from KHB, Berlin (2020) and a Bachelor's degree in Fine Arts from the University of Costa Rica (2014). She is currently pursuing a PhD in Arts and Design at UNAM (Mexico). Her professional development includes various artistic residencies, notably at Pivô Pesquisa (2023, São Paulo), Dos Mares (2023, Marseille), and Alter-academia (2016, TEOR/ética, Costa Rica). Diana has held solo exhibitions in Costa Rica and Germany, and participated in group exhibitions in Costa Rica, Germany, Brazil, Guatemala, and the United States. She received the Elsa-Neumann-Stipendium des Landes Berlin research grant (2020) and the Kickstarters Stipendium (2021, Berlin). She was the recipient of the Francisco Amighetti National Arts Award in the “other media” category (2018).
